Dipped in Cobalt

Another neutral look! Well, relatively neutral. I love navy blue liner with a passion, because blue is just about the prettiest color against brown eyes.  And it looks normal until you look close up, and then it looks like you lined your eyes with sapphire. Or cobalt. By the way, when I was looking up a picture for cobalt in google images, one of the first pictures that came up was a blue tarantula. I almost died. And here's the look!

Erm... Awkward. I don't really remember at all. I'll try anyway, though!\

  • Too Faced Shadow Insurance
  • Maybelline Color Tattoo in Barely Beige
  • Urban Decay Book of Shadows 4 palette; Skimp, Midnight Cowgirl, Zephyr.
  • Urban Decay Naked Palette; Naked, Smog
  • Urban Decay Binge eyeliner
  • L'Oreal quad in Cobalt Smokes (Dark blue and darker blue shades.)
  • Urban Decay Perversion eyeliner
  • Urban Decay curling mascara
Hmm. That looks right. Even if it isn't, you guys don't really care. 

Sorry if those products are completely wrong... I did that look everyday for about a week, using different products each time trying to get it to look better and better. I decided that more golden-yellow colors make for better contrast, I think. It doesn't help that I did the look a while ago too. I'm going to try to come up with some product reviews next. I know that everyone loves tutorials and looks the best, but I have a lot of pictures backed up in my camera, and most of them are products.  I do have looks too, so don't worry about that either. 

Hope ya'll are having a fabulous Saturday! Oh, and I went to LUSH for the first time today. That place is expensive! I don't know how you guys go to it so often. Well, hopefully the face bar I got there will do something for my disaster of a face. Screw you acne!

Backlit Clouds

My goodness! It's been months since I've posted a look. I don't know, I just haven't been super interested in doing a lot of makeup stuff lately. It's still fun, but I think that it's waning as a passion of mine. That being said, the love will never go away, and I'm sure that it will flare up very often, and when my hobbies flare up, they are all consuming. So, I have a look here for you... And it doesn't look super interesting in pictures, but it is one of my favorite everyday eye looks of all time, so here it is!

Wee! My face again! I still can't get the photo's to work for my face as far as proportions 
go, and yes, I am wearing my bathrobe. Stylin'!

  • Too Faced Shadow Insurance
  • Maybelline Color Tattoo in Tough as Taupe
  • Maybelline Color Tattoo in Barely Beige
  • Coastal Scents 88 Warm Palette
  • Milani single eyeshadow in Beach Sand
  • Urban Decay Perversion eyeliner
  • Urban Decay curling mascara
  • Benefit Hoola bronzer
  • Revlon Rose Rapture blush
  • MAC Dirty Plum blush
  • Benefit High Beam highlighter
  • Failed attempt at using OCC Lip Tar in Plum 

I really hope that you could tell what a gorgeous look this is from the pictures. It's really subtle, because none of the colors are very dark or very light. It reminds me of backlit clouds, because most of the look is a medium taupe color, but then right in the middle of the eye is a warmer, light sandy gold with a lot of shimmer.  It has a wee bit of a smokey, sultry element to it, but it's light, so it's perfect for day. I love it so much, and it's one of the few looks that I always go back to. I also always change up the liner; it isn't always all black everywhere.

I missed you guys! I hope that you missed me too. I hope to post more look posts, because I know that's what you guys love best, but I do love doing reviews too. Hopefully I'll just do more looks overall. I just started school again, though, so it'll be a little hard to find the time... But I'll see what I can do.  Junior year! Woot!
